How to sail this Spring

It’s  easy to sail this Spring. 

Do you need previous Sailing experience?

  • No, we show show how easy it is and you where can you sail in the Spring. The crew onboard delight in helping you get to grips with sailing.
  • You will only be asked to do something once you have been trained and a crew member will be on hand to help you.
  • There is no reason that within a few hours of joining you could not be steering the ship, helping set the sails and loads of other ‘hands on’ sailing activities.

  • All your safety equipment is provided.
  • All the ships are commercially licensed to sail with crew like yourself.
  • All the professional crew have certificates of competence to the level required.

What to wear to keep dry and warm sailing in the spring.

  • If this is your first voyage we recommend you DO NOT buy special sailing kit.
  • To keep dry, bring with you something that keeps your head, body and legs dry, walking or hiking kit is fine.
  • Footwear,our  ships are not luxury yachts, clean wellington boots and trainers are good.
  • To keep warm bring lots of layers, if it’s cold on deck you will not be asked to stay there too long.
  • Don’t forget your sunscreen, the clear air at sea let’s the power of the sun though

Pick a voyage, and get excited about sailing this spring.
